The Finger Lakes Retriever Club (FLRC) has been in existence since 1966. Its members are committed to the betterment of the retriever breed through training, testing, hunting, and participating in activities to demonstrate the intrinsic value of a trained retriever as a hunting companion and conservationist to the public.
We appreciate the natural abilities of the retriever breeds and work to insure their perpetuity. We evaluate our retrievers' performance by conducting organized hunt tests, under the rules of the American Kennel Club, utilizing tests that simulate conditions as near as possible to those encountered on a normal day's shoot.
FLRC is fortunate to be based at the Three Rivers Wildlife Management Area (3 Rivers) in Baldwinsville, NY. 3 Rivers is a 3,500 acre mix of upland and wetland areas, with several ponds. It is not only an ideal place to train, but hosts numerous Hunt Tests each year, including 3 hosted by FLRC. 3 Rivers is located approximately 18 miles north of Syracuse, between Baldwinsville and Phoenix.
FLRC hosts monthly formal training days from April through September, as well as two AKC Hunt Tests in July and September. Please review the Events Calendar on our website, and consider joining us as a new member. The Club has a great deal to offer retriever owners, whether they are just starting out in formal training and hunt testing, or are more experienced.
